So in other to solve this Problem, you need to change your Country in the Play store. 

Reasons why some Apps may not be available in your Country

1. Testing and Feasibility Studies: 

One of the biggest reasons why certain apps will show you such message could be because the App, Product or Service they are rendering has not been made available in your Country yet and is only available in the United States alone or a few Countries but as they keep rolling out to more Countries, the App becomes available, they do this in other for them to test in one country first and from their lessons, mistakes and market research report, they will be able to refine the App well to suite other Markets.

2. Only Accessible Locally: 

The second reason why you will see this on an App listing page on the Play store could be that the service or Product could only be rendered in the United States and with that there is no need to make such available to other Countries, just like an American paid Phone App, that won't work in other Countries and therefore would be restricted to the USA alone and if someone from another country goes to the App listing page to check it out, it will show the message "this app isn't available in your country"
